HARPER GOVERNMENT ANNOUNCES FUNDING FOR RICHMOND COUNTY COMMUNITY BUSINESS CENTRE

L’ARDOISE (NS) – August 18, 2012 – Senator Michael MacDonald today announced Government of Canada support for the construction of a community business centre in l’Ardoise. The new centre will provide space for health-related businesses and will be home to the Dr. Kingston Memorial Community Health Centre.

“Our Government is focused on jobs and economic growth,” said Senator MacDonald, on behalf of the Honourable Bernard Valcourt, Associate Minister of National Defence and Minister of State for the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency (ACOA) and La Francophonie. “Through key investments to help communities build on their strengths, we are supporting economic development and jobs for Atlantic Canadians. Our Government is pleased to join forces with the provincial and municipal government to make this project a reality and I commend the local community for its significant financial contribution made possible through various fundraising efforts.”

The total cost of the building is estimated to be $1.5 million. The Government of Canada’s investment of $500,000 in the project, through Enterprise Cape Breton Corporation’s (ECBC), has leveraged a $500,000 contribution from the Province of Nova Scotia and another $250,000 from the Municipality of the County of Richmond. Through various fundraising activities, the local community has raised over $250,000 in support of this project. Construction is expected to begin this fall.

“This new centre will be a commercial focal point for the community and assist in efforts to encourage health care related businesses to establish in the area,” said Steve Sampson, Councillor for District 9 (L’Ardoise). “We are pleased that the federal and provincial governments have helped us to achieve this goal.”

Enterprise Cape Breton Corporation offers programs in support of economic development initiatives and is responsible for delivering ACOA’s programs on Cape Breton Island and in the Mulgrave area.
